Chili Fry Tacos

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I was looking for something quick and easy to make for our tea the other night.  I needed to go grocery shopping and there wasn’t a lot of fresh things to choose from. I always have a pretty well stocked store cupboard and so I dug into that for some inspiration. 

In the freezer I found a bag of good quality frozen chips.  (As if I would buy yukky ones.  Never!)  I like the skinny ones. Todd likes the fatter ones. I try to compromise somewhere in between.

I also had tins of chili con carne in the cupboard. I also have homemade chili frozen, but I didn’t have the time to thaw any out. I was feeling pretty miserable with my cold and Todd was hungry now.

Hello “Man-Food!”  Yep. Chili Fry Tacos.  I think these were inspired.

You don’t have to go with just my suggested toppings of cheese, sour cream, lettuce, olives, peppers and spring onions.  Use any toppings that you generally enjoy on chili fries or tacos!  You can have it all and I am positive you will enjoy! Todd really did. Colour me happy.

*Chili Fry Tacos*

Serves 4


I had a can of chili and a bag of frozen chips, and I thought why not. It was a very good idea. 

1 (4 serving size) bag of good quality frozen chips

1 tin (400g) (14 1/2 oz) good quality of chili with beans

8 soft whole wheat taco boats

210g of grated strong cheddar cheese (1 cup) 

to serve:

shredded lettuce

sour cream

chopped spring onions, green peppers and black olives

 Preheat the oven to the temperature recommended on the pack of frozen chips/french fries. While the fries are cooking, heat the can of chili over low heat until it is bubbling. Place the taco boats on a baking tray.  Once the chips are golden, divide them between the taco boats.  Spoon an even amount of chili over each.  Top with the cheese. Pop them into the oven to heat the shells and melt the cheese. Scatter with the lettuce.  Dribble on the sour cream and sprinkle with the onions, peppers and olives. Serve hot.

Its amazing what you can do with a little bit of creativity and imagination. I really hope you will give these a go!  Bon Appetit!

      This is a cheap and easy take on what we call in the Southwest, “Carne Asada Fries”. You find them in the Mexican restaurants where I’m from. And they are AWESOME!
